Our parenting classes cover a wide variety of topics designed to enhance your already in place parenting skills: recognizing your parenting style, setting boundaries, anger management, developmental stages of childhood/adolescences, and stages of discipline, self-esteem, family conflict, communication and how to discuss sensitive topics with your children.
